I loved this, even more than FIREFLY. Kristin Hannah's books are always tearjerkers, but this one adds the difficult depth by showing us characters who are trying to learn to move on after they have lost the one person who held them all together.  Brutally honest and complex. told without sentimentality, the story is presented in sections that are in different times, but handled with the skill of a master.  Different, unpredictable, brilliant, and uplifting.

Firefly Lane is one of my favorite books. This book is my least favorite of all of her books.  I honestly don't know why I continued to read it. Probably because I paid for it. It was such a dark story.  There was absolutely NOTHING good that ever happened, no funny lines, no happy times during the entire book.  I realize this is a sequel to a story about death , but still hoped there would be some good times in this families journey. I death with gloom and doom everyday with cancer and dying. I just kind of wanted to escape real life in a book for a change. This did not leave me with a warm fuzzy feeling at all!

This is an amazing book. I never wanted to put it down. The way the story is so heart warming that tears begin to fall. It was beautiful story. That is why Kristen Hannah is my favorite author. I highly recommend this book as well as Firefly Lane. The adventures and life changing things that occur in these books allows you to not take family, friendship and love for granted.

Hannah has done a wonderful job finishing the TullyandKate story. I was literally counting down the days to purchase this and was not disappoints. Hannah revisits the greving family of Kate who are struggling to heal after the death of Kate. She also tells the heartbreaking story of Cloud who is Tully's mom, and the horrible childhood she had that led her to her addiction filled life. The author evenly balances out Marah's pain, Johnny's grief, Cloud's story, and Tully's devestation. Fans of the incredible friendship will enjoy the sequel. Though the first book will always be my favorite, the second was enjoyable as well. I am hoping for a third to finish up Tully, Marah, and Johnny!

Kristin Hannah doesn't again with Fly Away. I loved Firefly Lane from the first moment I started reading. It is one of the few books that actually made me cry while reading it. Fly Away is the follow up that talks about life after Kate's death. It talks about the struggles Marah has dealing with her mother's death, and Tully's struggles dealing with the mother that was never there(I can really relate to Tully in that sense). I also like the glimpse into Johnny's heart from his perspective. I always doubted that he truly loved Kate *for* Kate and just settled for her because he couldn't have Tully. Thank you Kristin for putting that to rest. The only thing that would have made the book perfect is that under the dates, the person was listed. I found myself having to go back a few times to figure out which character was speaking. Hey Kristin, how about a book in the future dealing with the twins?

I have read all of Hannah's books and loved Firefly Lane. I did not enjoy this one. No happiness in this book. The first half of the book dragged but I kept reading since I spent money for it. Toward the end it got more interesting.

I have read all of Kristin Hannah's books, so was really looking forward to this one. I enjoyed it but not as much as all of her others. Was just a bit disappointed! However, it is a good beach read!

Kristin has done an excellent job of writing about the lives of those we first met in Firefly Lane. She writes so well about how peoples lives were affected by others and how they surpassed and overcame their hardships. The story of Tully and Kate is a magical one. It is an emotional read.

I absolutely love Firefly Lane and you would not believe the thoughts that ran through my head as I anxiously waited for the release of Fly Away. Obviously there were many directions Kristan Hannnah could have gone with this book and I was completely blown away with the story she told. This is a book you want to share with everyone. I want to tell absolutely everyone just how absolutely wonderful this book was. It's a gift that you've never expected and a book that will stay with you long after you have read the last word. I am in awe of Kristan's talent to tell a story that was so emotional, so intimate and so fulfilling that you can not stop reading until you've reached the very end. This a book that will stay with you long after the last word has been read and will have a prominent spot on my keeper shelf. Every once I will take it down, sit down in my favorite chair, open to that first page and loose myself in the story all over again.

Tully Hart is still reeling over the death of her best friend Kate Ryan, even though it has been quite a few years. Her career as a television personality has gone down the toilet, her life seems hopeless, and she just doesn’t know how she can live anymore. When a bad decision, and a terrible car accident, critically injures Tully and brings her to Sacred Heart hospital, it might take facing her past to keep her alive. Many people are called to her bedside. Her best friend Kate’s husband Johnny, who has held a grudge against Tully since his wife’s death. Kate’s oldest daughter Marah, a confused and hurt teenager when her mother died, now an adult hiding behind the pain she has felt since that dark day. Tully’s mother, Dorothy, a former drug-addict and alcoholic who has hurt her only daughter more times than she cares to remember. Even Kate, who has watched from the heavenly sidelines all these years since her departure. I mainly chose the book Fly Away by Kristin Hannah, because of its cover. With its purplish hue and starry backdrop, it instantly reminded me of nights spent outside at my childhood home…fireflies flitting about and candles illuminating the darkness. Ironic, since the author wrote a book called Firefly Lane. Kristin Hannah is not an author who was particularly familiar to me. In fact, I can honestly say that before listening to this book (I have the audio version of it), she was nonexistent in my mind. How I could have gone so long without hearing about her wonderful stories, I shall never know. Because the book Fly Away was truly wonderful. The story is beautiful, it is emotional, and it was a stunning novel to listen to. I loved every minute of it, and will definitely have to read more of Kristin Hannah’s books.
